    K’naan - In The Beginning (Lyrics)

    From the closing credits of the last episode of True Blood

    Yiiiiaaaoowww!
    *breathing*

    So -
    In the beginning there was hum
    From a poet whose pulse fell
    Drum drum drum!

    He would perform prayers and all
    Till one day he heard a voice call
    Come come come!

    Suspicious he moved with vicious caution
    Dismisses, he thinks it’s a little off

    People get held back
    By the voice inside them

    Yo -
    The voice said I’m poised to speak inside you
    Rejoice and please let me invite you
    To evil, greed and lies too

    Yeah -
    Confusing days he moved in ways he soon became a kuuni
    Boom boom boom
    And knock on his door his lord is no more
    And knock on his door his soul is no more

    La la la la- yeah
    La la la la- that was in the beginning
    La la la la- as the story goes on
    La la la la-

    So so so -
    The poet’s got a proposal
    He would always hope but never know
    What it feels to be free

    He would be the frozen imposed as the chosen on all those opposing
    But he would be greedy
    That’s got him there
    He’s power hungry and proud too

    People don’t care, people just scared
    People don’t care, people just prayer

    La la la la- yeah
    La la la la- that was in the beginning
    La la la la- there was a hum
    La la la la- and things change
    La la la la-

    Yeah, yeah, yeah -
    Say -
    It’s better to light a candle than to curse the dark
    In the eyes of the youth there are question marks
    Like freedom
    Freedom for the mind and soul
    We don’t see them
    See them for their worth at all
    That’s why we lead them
    Lead them to these wars and what is it we feed them
    Feed them our impurities and who it is we treat them
    Treat them like the enemy humanity will need them
    Need them like the blood we spill and where freedom

    Freedom for the hearts we fill
    Mislead them
    They hunger for the love we give
    But we cheat them

    The cops beat them when all he wants is his freedom
    So they defeat them
    Whatever spirit he’s got
    Beat them

    And they teach them that the rest of the world don’t need him
    And he believes it’s a disease that he’s heathen
    Put up your fists if all you want is freedom
    Put up your fists if all you want is -

    La la la la- That was in the beginning
    La la la la- And things change
    La la la la-

    Yeah, yeah, yeah -
    And we keep holding on
    And we keep being strong
    And we keep going on
    And on and on and on

    And we keep holding on
    And we keep being strong
    And we keep going on
    And on and on and on

    And we keep holding on
    And we keep being strong
    And we keep going on
    And on and on and on

    And we keep holding on
    And we keep being strong
    And we keep going on
    And on and on and on
